MANUFACTURES '8 EXCLUSIVE DEALERS IN 

Glidden's Patent Steel Bar!) Wire 



FOR THE STATE OF TEXAS. 



Washburn & Moen Manufacturing Co. 

WORCESTER, MASS., 
Sole Manufacturers for the Eastern and Southern States, 



Made from two No. 12 Steel Wires full size, Barbs at 

right angles with Main Wire, and uniformly 

2^ or 5 inches apart as desired. 

It is evenly twisted, genuinely galvanized, and its strength is 
unequaled, the superiority of which is universally acknowledged. 
From the extensive use of Glidden's Patent Steel Barb Fence 
•Wire, it has fully demonstrated the fact, both to consumers and 
dealers, of its superiority over any other style of wire. The con- 
sequence is a constant, growing demand for it. Hence it being 
so generally called for that dealers in other styles of wire, we 
notice, have very generally fallen into the habit of representing 
to their customers they were actually being furnished with Glid- 
den Wire, when, in fact, they would get a wire only licensed by 
Washburn & Moen Manufacturing Co., simply bearing their 
names as licensees, but not made by them ; hence inferior both 
in style and quality. Our present prices are exceedingly low, and 
we earnestly invite a thorough investigation of this superior wire 
before placing orders. Sold through exclusive agencies through- 
out the state.

Population, 25. Mail, semi-weekly. 

HOUSE. A station on the G., C. & S. 
F. Ry, in Fort Bend county, 46 miles from 
Galveston. No postoftice. 



HOUSTON. Situated in Harris 
county, of which it is the judicial seat, is 
pre eminently the railroad centre of Texas, 
and ranks among the great commercial 
and manufacturing cities of the State. It 
is situated at the head of tide water on 
Buffalo Bayou, which is navigable by ves- 
sels drawing 9 feet of water, and the 
Morgan line of steamships affords connec- 
tions with Galveston and New Orleans. It 
is 50 miles northwest of Galveston, 216 
northeast of San Antonio, 166 southeast of 
Austin, 264 southeast of Dallas 361 from 
New Orleans, and 1,683 from New York. 
Transportational facilities are afforded by 
the G. div. M. P. Ry, which runs from 
here in a northeasterly direction to Long- 
view; theG., II. & H. div. of the same 
road connecting Houston with Galveston; 
and the C. div. ruuning to Columbia. It 
is the eastern terminus of the H. & T. C. 
and the T. W. Rys, the southern terminus 
of the H., E. & \V. T. Ry, and the north- 
ern terminus of the H. & G. div.- G., C. & 
S. F. Ry. The Galveston, Harrisburg and 
San Antonio Railway passing through 
here traverses the State, running east and 
west from Orange to El Paso. All these 
great lines centering here, and with their 
connections radiating to all parts of the 
United States, afford the manufacturer op- 
portunities for trans continental shipment 
unsurpassed by those of any city of its size 
in America. Several other roads are now 
in course of construction and are approach- 
ing the city, among them being the Texas 
Mexican Railway, of which Corpus Christi 
is at present the eastern terminus. Hous- 
ton is so situated that the greater portion 
of the freights from the north and east for 
Mexico and California must pass through 



the city. There are 5 banks doing busi-vi 
ness here, 2 national with an aggregate cap 
ital of $600,000, a savings bank, capital 
$100,000, and 2 private institutions, all of 
which enjoy the confidence of the business, 
men. The manufacturing interests, whiclif 
are very extensive, comprise a barbed wire' 
fence factory, 2 bottling woFks, carriage and 3 
wagon works, a brewery, brick and tile fac- ►w 
tories, a chair factory, 2 cotton compresses, "r 
2 cigar factories, a cotton gin, a flour mill, 2 UQ 
foundries and machine shops, a confec- CD 
tionery factory, a rolling mill, an ice fac- ^5 
tory, planing and shingle mills, 2 mattress f+ 
factories, plow works, a cotton-seed oil (J) 
factory, mill machinery works, 3 sash, 
door and blind factories, and many more 
too numerous to mention in this sketch, 
but a complete list of which will be found 
in the subjoined alphabetical list. Educa- 
tion is represented by an excellent system 
of public schools, 3 business colleges, the CD 
Clopper Institute, the English and Ger- Q* 
man Institute and St. Joseph's school. ^ ^ 
The religious advantages are all that 3D O 
could be desired, there being 22 churches, 
16 white and 6 for the colored population. 
Four months subsequent to the famous 
battle of San Jacinto, which occurred on 
the 21st of April, 1836, and which culmi- 
nated in the independence of Texas as a 
separate nationality, the land where the H O 
present city now stands was surveyed and a 3

laid off into streets and building lots. The 
town, which was named in honor of Gen- 
eral San Houston, the hero of San Jacinto, 
was made the capital in 1837 and remaiued 
so for 4 years, when it was removed to 
Washington, thence back again to Houston 
and finally to Austin, where it still re- 
mains. In 1842, Houston had reached a 
population of 3,000, had several 
buildings and was favored with water 
communication with the States by the 
Buffalo Bayou, Galveston Bay and the 
Gulf. Upon the admission of Texas as 
one of the Soveriegn States of the Union, 
in 1846, the city Was infused with a fresh

commercial life, and the influx of settlers 
from the older states gave new vigor to its 
industrial capacities. 

The handling of cotton is an important 
feature in the commerce of Houston and 
adds largely to the industries of that city. 
It practically controls the cotton product 
of the Red river country, and over the T. 
& N. O. Ry, its trade in that commodity 
extends into Western Louisiana. The 
principal public building is the City Hall 
and Market House, constructed of brick, 
at a cost of $400,000. It is 372 feet long by 
146 feet wide, and, besides the city offices, 
contains a hall 70 by 110 feet, fitted 
up for public entertainments, and capable 
of seating 1,300 persons. All the city of- 
fices, which are spacious and fitted up 
with every convenience, are located on the 
second floor. From the top of the main 
tower the view is picturesque and inter- 
esting. Spread out upon either side is the 
beautiful city of Houston, its broad streets 
running at right angles, and lined with 
shade trees. At a little distance upon the 
north side is a range of slightly elevated 
wooded land, at the verge of which are 
many elegant private residences. To the 
east there is a charming grove, which is a 
favorite resort during the summer season. 
In contrast to the above, on the south and 
southeast, are seeu the trains of cars and 
the boats and steamers upon the Bayous, 
suggestive of commercial prosperity. In 
the immediate vicinity are the banks, 
stores, warehouses, factories, churches and 
hotels of the "Bayou City." Here, then, 



is already established the nucleus of great 
enterprises, the homes of comfort and 
plenty, and the capacity to embrace and 
support a population of 100,000. The city 
was organized and assumed the functions 
of a civil corporation in 1888; it is now gov- 
erned by a mayor and a board of aldermen, 
is lighted with gas „and electricity, has an 
excellent street railway system, water 
works, art efficient fire department, 
lodges of all the principal secret and 
benevolent societies, and all the other attri- 
butes of a first-class and thoroughly pros- 
perous city. The press is represented by 
the Age, daily and weekly democratic; the 
Deutsche Post, and the Texas German Ga- 
zette, both weekly democratic papers, and 
the Girls National Reformer (Ind.), issued 
semi-monthly. Tn the near future as this 
section of the grandest agricultural state 
in the Union shall become developed, its 
vast domain populated, its agricultural 
capacities and resources utilized, and its 
immense surplus products shall require 
additional railway facilities for transpor- 
tation to the seaboard cities, Houston will 
become the most important railway centre 
in all the southern states. The machine 
shops of the H. & T. C. Ry, located here, 
give employment to a number of men, 
and these men live in the city and spend 
their wages here, thus adding materially 
to the prosperity of the retail stores and 
shops. Population, 23,000. Tel., W. U. 
Exp., Pacific, Texas and W., F. & Co. 
Mail, daily.

I This School, located in the most picturesque part of Washington county, enjoys a reputation for 

rare healthfulness. It is accessible from Brenham and Navasota on the H. & T. C, and from Gay Hill 
and Clay Station on the G. C. & S. T. Its isolation from society excitements and thoroughfare com- 
mends it for economy in dress, uninterrupted student life and immunity from malignant epidemics. 
Its constantly sustained prosperity is the evidence of intrinsic merit in the college course. The 
Music School, well equipped and thorough, controls a large patronage. The Art School is not equaled 
elsewhere in the State, and has no superior in the South.

Our Specialties. ' 

The Bible a regular study, with reference to the modern phases of infidelity and the necessity of 
adopting pronounced views in favor of the evangelical religion. 
Morahty, based upon the Bibl-3 as an inspired book. 
Tne study of our native language as we speak it, as we read it, as we write it. 

Our Annual Motto: 

PURITY OF MORALS ; PURITY OF MANNERS ; PURITY OF LANGUAGE. 



That the extremely low charges for board and tuition may be kept at the present figures, the sys- 
tem of advance collections will be rigidly insisted upon. Such exceptionally low charges for board can 
only be justified with cash in hand to buy supplies in bulk at wholesale prices ; and the teacher, to bo 
vhat he ought to be in the school room, must be relieved from the harassing trials of the slow and 
partial payment plan. Any mistake in charges will always be cheerfully corrected, and, when a pupil 
by absolute necessity leaves school, unappropriated funds will be refunded. 

For the benefit of parents and pupils, the President has effected au arrangement with able phy- 
sicians, whereby, for the moderate charge of three dollars per scholastic year of ten months, the 
young lady boarders will Lave medical attention for the whole or an}- part of the session. 

Send for complete catalogue to the President. (See next page.)

MARSHALL. Situated on the E.

the judicial seat, 74 miles southwest of

northeast of Austin. It is growing stead- 
ily and now contains Catholic, Episcopal, 
Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian and Cum- 
berland Presbyterian churches, good 
schools, a cotton gin factory, an ice fac- 
tory, a corn mill, 2 wagon factories, a

the Herald (tri-weekly), and the Messenger

St. Louis through the Indian Territory 
will be completed to this point during 
1885. The railroad car shops located here 
give employment to a number of men and 
add materially to the prosperity of the city.

poses surrounds the town and in every 
respect Marshall possesses advantages 
equal, if not superior, to those of any of 
her sister cities of the same size. She is 
fast tending to metropolitan style and will 
eventually rank among the first cities in 
Texas. The exports, which consist chiefly 
of lumber, wool, and hides, are enormous 
and are. still steadily increasing. Hack

SAN ANTONIO. Was first settled 
j in 1691 by a Spanish colouy, who named 
A~ the place San Antonio de Bexar, in honor 
Li q of the Duke de Bexar in Spain. The col- 
H O on y was composed of adventurous and 
H < warrior monks of the Franciscan order, 
fjj O who immediately commenced the erection 
jn x of churches and missions for the conver- 
"*- O sion of the Indians and protection against 
savage tribes. The first mission lies with- 
in the present corporate limits of the city, 
and is in a perfect state of preservation. 
In 1730, there arrived under the protection 
of the then Viceroy of Mexico a colony of 
p| thirteen families from the Canary Islands, 
{Q comprised of the noblest and proudest 
K blood of Spain. New life and vigor were 
r thus aroused, and the founding of San An- 
tonio was firmly established. The city is 
H located upon both banks of the San An- 
H tonio river, which rises from numerous 
^ springs gushing at the base of a low lime- 
" stone formation»that constitutes an extend- 
er ing spur of the high cretaceous strata of 
O table land. It is 216 miles southwest of 
Houston, 94 from Uvalde, 80 southwest of 
Austin, and 153 northeast of Laredo, 
hA and is in the geographical centre 
vW of Bexar county, of which it is the judicial 
seat. The I. div. of M. P. Ry and G., H. 
_^ & S. A. Ry passing through here afford, 
^» with their numerous connections, trans- 
^"* portational facilities to all parts of the 
United States and Mexico. Here among 
other monuments of thrilling interest is 

a the famous Alamo, where the chivalrous 
Travis, Bowie and Crockett, with about 
^Z3 170 comrades, laid down their lives for 
i— < their country's freedom. The building 
■J3 has recently been purchased by the State 
„G an( i will be carefully preserved. The city 
ft is built chiefly of stone, though many 
M"< handsome wooden private residences have 
recently been erected; real estate is in de- 
O mand at good prices, immigration is con- 
OQ stant and those who come here generally 
come to stay. As a health resort San An- 
tonio is without a rival in the State, its 
pure atmosphere filled with ozone exercis- 
ing a most salutary effect, on invalids. All 
Q the leading religious denominations are 
represented by church organizations.

There are 6 large public schools and 14 
private and religious institutions of learn- 
ing and the various secret, benevolent and 
social societies have large memberships. 
The' press is represented by the fol- 
lowing newspapers: The Express (daily 
morning), the Times, the Light and the 
Freie Presse (afternoon dailies), the Express, 
Texas Stockman, Beobachter, Phonograph, 
Opera Glass and El Hogar (Spanish) week- 
lies. Commercially, San Antonio stands in 
the front rank among the cities of the Lone 
Star State, and contains 6 banks, 2 Nation- 
al and four private, ice factories, 
iron foundries, flour mills, 3 soap 
factories, cement works, planing 
mills, large wholesale and retail 
dry goods and grocery houses, 2 sash, 
door and blind factories, tanneries, 4 brew- 
eries, hotels, extensive lines of street rail- 
ways, gas and water works, and all the 
other attributes of a first-class and thor- 
oughly prosperous city. It is the largest 
wool market, and with only one exception, 
the largest horse market in the States. In 
1883, the assessed valuation of real and per- 
sonal property was $12,650,690, an increase 
of $3, 027, 389 over the previous year. The 
trade of the city extends over western, 
northwestern and southwestern Texas, 
and a large portion of Mexico ; and pro- 
jected lines of railroad will soon enlarge 
its limits much beyond its present territory. 
It is the headquarters of Department of 
Texas U. S. Army, and the free letter 
carrier system is in vogue. San Antonio 
offers many opportunities for manufactur- 
ing, but thus far they have not been utilzed 
to any great extent. The field for this indus- 
try is broad and open, and awaits only occu- 
pation by energy and capital. The soil is 
abundantly productive, and is adapted to 
the highest state of cultivation. It offers 
rare inducements to the industrious immi- 
grant, who would find the hand of welcome 
generously extended to him by its hospit- 
able and genial citizens. Stages run daily

fort and other points. Tel., TV. U. and

SHERMAN. A handsome and pros-

the central portion of Grayson county, 
of which it is the judicial seat, 328 miles 
northwest of Houston, 18 east of Whites- 
borough, and 285 northeast of Austin. 
It contains 2 banks, the Merchants' and 
Planters', and the City Bank of Sherman, 
having an aggregate capital of $800,000; 
7 churches, Episcopal, Methodist, Bap- 
tist, Presbyterian (Cumberland and Old- 
school), Christian and Catholic, and 
several for the colored population. Its 
educational advantages are the pride of 
its citizens, and consist of St. Joseph's 
Academy (Catholic), Sherman Female 
Institute, North Texas Female Insti- 
tute, Austin College, and good public 
schools. The city is lighted by gas, has 
a telephone exchange, good system of 
street railways, an efficient and well 
equipped fire department, and a hand- 
some opera house, capable of seating 
1,000. Two daily and weekly newspapers, 
The Courier and The Democrat, are pub- 
lished, and keep the citizens informed on 
all current topics of interest. Its busi- 
ness houses are handsome and substantial 
brick buildings, and its residences are 
pretty, stylish and comfortable. It is 



a flourishing and progressive place, and 
there is no doubt that encouraging as has 
been its growth during the past few 
years, it is as yet only on the threshold 
of its greatness, and it is safe to say that 
in a few years it will rank among the 
great cities of the Lone Star State. The 
principal shipments, during 1883, were 
40,000 bales of cotton, 30,000 pounds of 
wool, 200,000 pounds of hides and peltries,

ALABASTIUE. 

AN ALABASTER CEDENT. 

Alabastine is the first and only preparation made from calcined Gyp- 
sum rock, for application to walls with a brush, and is fully covered by 
our patents. It is the only permanent wall-finish, and admits of ap- 
plying as many coats as desired, one over another, to any hard surface, 
without clanger of scaling or noticeably adding to the thickness of the 
wall, which is strengthened and improved by. each additional coat, 
from time to time. It. is the only material for tl*J9 purpose not depend- 
ent upon Glue for its adhesiveness ; furthermore, it is the only prepara- 
tion that is claimed to possess the above great advantages, which are 
essential to constitute a durable wall-finish. 

Alabastine is hardened on the wall by age, moisture, etc. : the plas- 
ter absorbs the admixture, forming a stone cement, while all Kalso- 
mines or whitening preparations have chalks and glue for their base, 
which are rendered soft or scaled in a very short time, thus necessita- 
ting the well-known great inconvenience and expense which all have 
experienced in washing and scraping off the old coats before refmishing, 
to avoid as much as possible its scaling off upon furniture, goods, ma- 
chinery, etc. In addition to the above advantages, Alabastine is less 
expensive than other preparations, as it requires but one-half the 
number of pounds to cover the same amount of surface with two coats ; 
is ready for use by adding water, and easily applied by anyone. 

While Alabastining is superior to all other ways of refmishing walls, 
such as Kalsomining, Papering, Painting, &c, it is also the best^ 
cheapest and by far the most durable finish 

FOR IsTEW- TFTAXiTJB, 

ON A SAND FINISH OE BBOWN PLAST1B. 

It is well known that the finish known as " hard finish," or " putty 
coat," is not a durable one, and that many times it is soiled by work- 
men, and cracked by shrinking of timbers m the building, so as to re- 
quire coating with something before the building is ready for occu- 
pancy, or soon after, as it is delicate and brittle and is put on good 
buildings before the finishing of wood-work, painting, etc., and before 
the building is thoroughly dried out from being dampened and swelled 
by the wet plastering, while the Alabastine finish can be applied the 
last thing before moving in the building, and the cracks invariably 
found in the " hard finish," are avoided. 

The coat of Alabastine is thin, and not designed to fill and smooth 
uneven plaster, but one coat of tint, or two of white, mixed the same as 
for other surfaces, produces a beautiful, . even finish, and the most 
durable, and may be renewed from time to time by inexperienced 
hands, and every additional coat adds to the strength of the wall ; is 
hardened by age, and will not fade. 

There are different ways of plastering walls for this Alabastine 
finish, according to the amount of expense and labor to be expended, 
as it will make a durable and handsome finish on one coat of common 
mortar, floated off and made comparatively smooth, and a better one 
on a good smooth sand finish as usually made for nice papering. 
E@~The new work must be thoroughly dry, before applying Alabastine.

county, of which it is the judicial seat,

Waco has long been known as a city of 
churches and schools, and while it enjoys 
to-day the distinction of being one of the 
leading commercial cities in Texas, it is 
none the less renowned as a seat of learn- 
ing and for the intelligence and morality 
of its citizens. Situated at the point of 
intersection of the three chief railway 
systems of the State, viz., the W. & N. 
W. div. H. & T. C; the W. sec. M. P. 
and the T. & St. L. Rys. Waco has facilities 
for transcontinental traffic unsurpassed by 
any city of its size in Texas. The estimated 
annual sales of general merchandise aggre- 
gate over $5,000,000; the receipts and ship- 
ments of cotton, 50,000 bales; of wool, 
900,000 lbs. ; of hides, 500,000 lbs. ; of live 
stock, 8,000 head; of grain, 200 car loads: 
and the value of miscellaneous articles 



shipped is $350,000. The manufacturing 
interests comprise a cotton factory of yarns 
and seamless socks, a large woolen factory, 
2 cotton seed oil mills, 4 flouring mills, 2 
foundries and machine shops, a rotary 
plow factory, 2, cotton compresses, 2 ice 
factories, 2 planing mills, a stirrup factory, 
and extensive manufactories of- carriages, 
wagons - and agricultural implements. 
Waco has a well equipped fire department 
and an excellent system of water works, 
which combined, render the city safe from 
any serious conflagration. There are 
here 5 banks, a handsome opera house 
and several good hotels. Waco Female 
college, Waco University, Academy 
of the Sacred Heart, a school for 
boys and girls for the special benefit 
of those of the Hebrew faith, Lambdin 
Female Seminary, the Kindergarten 
school, Leland's Semina r y, excellent 
public schools, besides a number of priv- 
ate and denominational institutions of 
learning, constitute the educational facili- 
ties of Waco. All of the leading religious 
denominations have churches, and many 
of them are spacious and handsome struc- 
tures. The streets are wide and well 
paved, and are studded with handsome 
business blocks and private residences. 
The press is represented by 2 daily and 2 
weekly newspapers. The city is lighted 
by gas, has 3 miles of street railway in 
operation, is connected by telephone with 
all surrounding points, and has, in fact, all 
the attributes of a first-class and thorough- 
ly prosperous city. Tel., W. U. Exp.,
